Freelancer Stephanie Hawthorne collects her Award from Head of Pensions Policy at Scottish Widows Peter Glancy and Awards Host Marcus Brigstocke
WINNER: STEPHANIE HAWTHORNE, FREELANCE, FOR WORK ON PENSIONS EXPERT
The five names who made it to the shortlist had already done extremely well to make it as far as they had, and by the time the first phase of scoring had taken place, a pair of names had pulled clear of the pack. After some in-depth deliberations, it is Stephanie Hawthorne who scoops the honours for 2020.
“Stephanie is a class act, year on year she shows a great depth of knowledge and contacts,” commented one judge. “It’s not easy to get passionate about pensions... but she paints a grey industry with an interesting colour,” a second judge added.
HIGHLY COMMENDED: MARIA ESPADINHA, PENSIONS EXPERT
The judges had high praise for Maria’s submissions, commenting on the variety and depth of her pieces. “A well-rounded and impressive submission” remarked one judge. “Good stories. Maria has come a long way in the last couple of years and has done a good job this year,” commented another.
